Oh I hear that, Rox'e; I can't believe what they will charge for "pet"
supplements and how they add stuff that is not needed-in fact it isn't even
good for the dog.

I found that the only difference between the dog stuff and the people stuff
is palatability. Dog stuff has lots of other crap in it like flavor, sugar,
corn startch etc in it to make and enjoyable for the dog to eat. Personally
I gave my dog a human pill with 1500 mgs gluc, 1200 mg chon. I hid it in a
small amount of cream cheese. That way, I had control over what my dog ate.
I also tried to shop the sales. Frequently Walgreens had buy one, get one
free on the brand I bought and I'd stock up during those times.

> My seven year old guide dog, Pascal has been slowing down over the last
few months. The Vet also noticed some joint pain in his hips, low back and
shoulders. I would like to start him on a joint supplement. I am considering
Glucosamine and chondrointin. Is it safe to use human strength products, or
should I purchase it from my Vet's office. How many miligrams does a 75lb.
dog need? I was also told to put him on a fish oil supplement too, so what
is a good amount of that to give him? What is the best way to give these
supplements (do I put it in his food, etc)?
